Leicester beat Guardiola's Manchester City, which He has his third defeat in four games, loses second place and is seven points behind the leader, Liverpool, a distance that begins to be worrisome for the team that trains the Catalan coach. He lost to Chelsea, his first loss in the league and since then, has lost the course and who knows if the options of the championship. Then he won at Everton and has fallen against Crystal Palace and against Leicester on boxing day, the holiday of English football. Although Pep does not have much to celebrate.
And that Bernardo Silva ahead of City, after a pass from Agüero and put the meeting face. But lately nothing comes out to Pep. Everything that used to be good, now is twisted. Albrigthon tied five minutes later, in the 18th and, ten minutes from the end, Ricardo Pereira made the Leicester goal, which defeated City unexpectedly.
The current Premier League team started the season as a shot, invincible, as if in a hurry to repeat victory in the English championship. Guardiola has the mission to conquer again England and, above all, to triumph in the Champions League. His start scared all the rivals, not only in the Premier, but also the competitors of the Champions
But the passage of the matches has made a dent in a team that now seems unable to compete with those of Klopp. The Liverpool thrashed Newcastle Benitez. Accustomed to being a team of instants, now the leader of the Premier is a roller that almost nobody makes shade. He has not lost any matches (16 wins, 3 draws) and has scored 43 goals and has only received 7. He is being more regular than City and now he is chasing Pochettino's Tottenham, who thrashed (5-0) Bournemouth.
Guardiola has a problem. You need to recover the best version of your team so that in January you do not lose the Premier. You can not afford that luxury. This weekend there is a League day and next week he will play again. On Thursday, January 3, Liverpool visits the City. There may be the key to the year. There Klopp can definitely defeat Guardiola.
